This late 13th-century Chronicle is a major source for the history of the Cilician Armenian kingdom. Roughly three fourths of the work consists of a summary of another medieval Armenian history by Matthew of Edessa which describes the period from 951 to 1136 and its continuation by Gregory the Priest, covering 1136-1162. Since Matthew's work has survived, by far the most important part of the Chronicle is its original portion, devoted to the period from 1163 to 1272. For unknown reasons, our text terminates abruptly in mid-sentence while describing the events of 1272. Smbat (1208-1276) was commander-in-chief (Arm. sparapet) of the Cilician Armenian army and the brother of King Het'um I (1226-1269, d. 1270). As a statesman and general, he was a major participant in Cilician civil, military, and diplomatic affairs of the second half of the 13th century. An educated and literate individual, Smbat translated the Assises of Antioch from French into Armenian, and probably had some familiarity with Greek, Arabic, Turkish and/or Persian. He visited the Mongol court in Qaraqorum (1248) and recorded some of his observations in a short letter in French to his brother-in-law Henry I of Cyprus.
